tiLLie is a singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist. Not too long ago, she released a hyper alternative-rock tune, entitled, “Hell Yeah!”
tiLLie – “Hell Yeah!” single
“I’d been listening to a lot to Blur, The Prodigy, and old UK garage stuff. So I found myself digging through breakbeat drum samples when I came across the one that became the basis for ‘Hell Yeah.’ I threw it in Ableton and tracked this gnarly-sounding bass line. When I brought the track to my buddy Devon to finish, we tried re-tracking it but ultimately the energy was in the original take so it stayed.” – tiLLie explained
‘Hell Yeah’ is a little sarcastic, a little earnest, a little tiLLie. Pairing twisting beats with languid, anguished vocals, ‘Hell Yeah’ gets straight to the point. In pure alternative-rock form, tiLLie rebuts, “I got to find happiness in the fact I didn’t die today?” In a world of climate disasters, financial uncertainty, and social unrest, “Hell Yeah!” celebrates the little wins while keeping it all in perspective.
“Lyrically, ‘Hell Ya’ touches on the frustration I think a lot of my friends and I have been feeling. We’re in our 20s. We’re supposed to be outside f***ing sh*t up and living our lives. But everything going on in the world has forced us inside. It speaks to how the pandemic simplified the ways in which I gauged whether or not I had a good day. Did I make it through without having a mental break down and am I still alive? Which is equally humbling and incredibly depressing so I channeled all those paradoxical feelings and pent up energy into this song.” – tiLLie explained
tiLLie, a self-proclaimed “anti-pop star,” has spent the last few years making a name for herself. She has built a dedicated following of fans who proudly call themselves #theglittergang – ready to turn the world on its head.
In December of 2016, tiLLie caught the ear of Machine Gun Kelly and Kevin Lyman (creator of the Vans Warped Tour) during a sold-out acoustic performance in Los Angeles. Since then, she has spiraled upward with infectious tunes that are seeping into listeners’ ears.
